This just doesn’t make any sense. Taylor Wimberly from AndroidAndMe on the Droid:
The Motorola Droid will be the most powerful Android phone to date when it launches… However, the device still features the same shortcomings of all other Android phones. The Droid ships with a 512 MB ROM which contains only 256 MB available for app storage.
So, only 256MB available to store applications, utilities, games on the Droid. I have 180 apps on my iPhone which take up almost 4GB of storage.
Have you seen all the awesome iPhone and iPod Touch games? Hardly any of them would fit on an Android phone. It is not uncommon for popular titles to easily exceed 100 MB. For example, the game Myst takes up a whopping 727MB.
Droid might be nice but this is a killer flaw for anyone serious about handheld games.
